Great hospitality

We spent a wonderful time in the hotel. The entire team was attentive and going out of their way to make it your best stay yet. And every day a special Indian tea prepared by Jitendra, who made us really feel welcome and at home. Looking back on beautiful moments and sure to return. Frederik & family

Previously exceptional but

Berkshire

No longer quite a 5 in reality. Previously our go to hotel in the UAE with 3 visits in the last 3 years. Unfortunately however the Waldorf is starting to show its age. Some of the furniture and fittings in the public areas can best be described as tired. Room furniture is also a little tired and our bathroom particularly the shower cubicle could certainly of done with some attention. Also frayed hotel towels particularly on the beach hardly say 5 star. The adult pool tiles are badly stained and there were simply not enough sun loungers around the adult pool area. Low occupancy and the usual great service and a huge balcony meant that we still had an enjoyable and relaxing stay. As always I enjoyed the Hotel food although the buffet restaurant service was often below par even with the obviously reduced occupancy. Will we return? Probably but next time we will take a closer look at the many other options, which is a shame. Sent from my iPad
